Redmond’s spooky dance party “Thrill the World” will be creeping into town on Oct. 28 and dance workshops will begin this Saturday.
For those children and adults who want to get their zombie groove on, they can join instructors Teresa Osborn and Brenda Frost at the Redmond Senior Center, 8703 160th Ave. N.E.
Osborn and Frost will teach Michael Jackson’s iconic “Thriller” dance to adults and children over 12 and children over 8.
For youth 12 and over and adults, the dance will be taught in its entirety every week. There will be a $5 pre-registration charge, or $7 at the door.
Classes start at 10:30 a.m. this Saturday, plus Sept. 30, Oct. 7, Oct. 14 and Oct. 21.
For children 8 to 11, the dance will be taught in stages, and this five-part series breaks the dance down into easy-to-learn steps and builds each week. Cost is $25 for five lessons.
Classes begin at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday, plus Sept. 30, Oct. 7, Oct. 14, Oct. 21.
